App Crashes after Update


Recommended Posts

I am getting the following error after updating Affinity Photo from version 2.4 to 2.5.  When I uninstalled it and reinstalled the app, it started working again on the lower versions, but once I upgraded again to the newer version it failed.

Application: Photo.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException
   at <Module>.PersonaController.LoadFontsAndPropertyCollections(PersonaController*)
   at Serif.Interop.Persona.Services.InteropService.LoadFontsAndPropertyCollections()
   at Serif.Affinity.Application+<>c__DisplayClass100_0.<OnServicesInitialised>b__1()
   at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.RunInternal(System.Threading.ExecutionContext, System.Threading.ContextCallback, System.Object, Boolean)
   at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(System.Threading.ExecutionContext, System.Threading.ContextCallback, System.Object, Boolean)
   at System.Threading.ExecutionContext.Run(System.Threading.ExecutionContext, System.Threading.ContextCallback, System.Object)
   at System.Threading.ThreadHelper.ThreadStart()

Welcome to the Affinity forums.

Can you provide more information about when this occurs, and what you're doing when it does?

Do you also get any Crash Reports?

All drivers for bios, graphic and OS have been applied to the system with no change in behavior. 

Thanks. And did you try the steps for turning off Hardware Acceleration listed in that FAQ?

Thanks, too, for the .dmp file as that may help the Affinity team figure out additional steps.

Sorry to hear you're having trouble @newman n & welcome to the Affinity Forums!

The crash you're experiencing appears to be a previously fixed issue that occurred on certain Windows machines when loading fonts.

This was resolved in our v2.5.2 update, and we've also since released v2.5.3 with further bug fixes included.

I can see you are currently running v2.5.0, which is why this crash is still occurring.
Please visit the below link to download the latest version of Affinity for Windows:

https://store.serif.com/update/universal-licence/

Once downloaded, install the updates and you should find the apps then launch as expected :)

That seems to have worked.  After I installed the update, I was left with 2 installs of Affinity Photo though.  I removed the old one, but that seems a little weird for an update.  But thank you for the quick reply and getting me moving again.

That sounds like you probably had the application installed using the EXE installer, then installed the update using the MSIX installer. In that scenario, it was not an update but a separate full install.

(The opposite scenario is also possible, but I think it's less likely in most cases. Without knowing exactly the steps you took to install it, I can't say much more.)
